"Some of you may remember that earlier this year, Republicans tried to shut me out of a hearing on contraception," said Sandra Fluke while speaking Wednesday evening at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. "In fact, on that panel, they didn’t hear from a single woman."
Fluke, of course, is the former Georgetown University Law School student deemed "a slut" by Rush Limbaugh after she advocated on behalf of cheaper birth control paid for by her school's health insurance plan. And writer Megan Stielstra considers Fluke's absence from said Congressional hearing a problem as well. To Stielstra, it's a mystery where those Republicans who are particularly concerned with the female anatomy learned what they know about it. "Vague information can be just as dangerous as innacurate information," she says. Read an excerpt below or listen above:
